For the last 13+ years or so I (John F Croston III) have given many accessibility presentations at many different events. The following are the main talks I have presented.
- “Is Your Website Accessible” - If Not Practical Ways to Make Them So.
- Food version - “Is Your Website Accessible” - If Not Practical Ways to Make Them So.
- Creating an Accessibility Community and Keeping it Going (CSUN 2018)
- Improve Accessibility with Performance Tuning - Page Weight Matters
- Simple Accessibility testing
My Places to Eat
My friends are always asking me where to eat. I tend to be talking about the unusual little inexpensive and out of the way places to eat.
So I created “Gotta Eat Here” which lists interesting restaurants that I found. Sometimes the restaurant is there for only one dish, a dessert, or the whole menu. NOTE - Any restaurants with an asterisk after their name are ones I'm looking to get too.
General Website Information
You area at the website of John F Croston III. I'm a web developer and accessibility advocate from the Washington, DC area.
Right now, the website is nothing fancy. It's created with only HTML and CSS. Being an old school developer, I used vCard Microformats here along with the “Gotta Eat Here” website.
My blog is full of posts on what I'm up to. Be that accessibility, travel, etc. Along with things I have created or learned, and any other web related items I have found. You will find a bunch of things related to food.
I enjoy web development a great deal. To do my job, I use the following languages, processes, and skills.
- Section 508
- WCAG 2.0
- DHS Trusted Testing Process
- Screen readers
- Documents Reviews
- Web Standards
- Validators for HTML, CSS, Links, etc.
In My Spare Time
I enjoy cooking, great wine, running Accessibility DC, walking, and a lot more.
Lately, I've been learning about cooking, farming/homesteading, growing my own food, fermenting, etc.
I tend to read technical books about accessibility, web, development, user experience, and design.
Here is my resume with a shorter version of my web background or the full version including everything. NOTE - They are in Word for now and I need to create the PDF versions.
